ABSTRACT
Decision-theoretic optimization is becoming a popular tool
in the user interface community, but creating accurate cost
(or utility) functions has become a bottleneck -- in most
cases the numerous parameters of these functions are cho-
sen manually, which is a tedious and error-prone process.
This paper describes ARNAULD, a general interactive tool
for eliciting user preferences concerning concrete outcomes
and using this feedback to automatically learn a factored cost
function. We empirically evaluate our machine learning al-
gorithm and two automatic query generation approaches and
report on an informal user study.
